The Portsmouth Murders by Pauline Rowson
Meet Detective Inspector Andy Horton. It’s his second day back in Portsmouth’s CID and things aren’t going well.
Please note this was previously published as Tide of Death.
DI Andy Horton is on his morning run along an isolated stretch of beach when he stumbles across a dead man. Stark naked and bludgeoned to death.
Eight months ago, DI Horton’s life fell apart when he was suspended for misconduct. His wife kicked him out and stopped him seeing his daughter.
The young woman who’d accused him went missing and the charges were dropped, but his personal and professional life are still in a mess.
And now it doesn’t look good for a detective under suspicion to be the one to find a dead body. His colleagues don’t want him on the case.
But this murder will challenge Detective Horton in every single way. And when another body turns up with the same cause of death, Horton suspects he might be the next person in the killer’s sights.
